About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Tired of the disappointing rental units you have tried in the past? Step up to vacationing as it should be. Luxury relaxation with amenities galore, and a view to die for!

The Moorings is a fairly new complex built in 2005 with common areas fresh and well kept. This condominium is a very spacious three bedroom three bath, with 2000 square feet of living area. It is professionally decorated, and newly refurnished. Tile floors and granite counter tops accentuate this luxury condominium.

The master bedroom is complete with king size bed and new Simmons World Class mattress, ensuring a wonderful nights sleep. The master bath offers a Jacuzzi whirlpool tub for winding down after a long day of activity. Breathtaking sunrises filter through the riggings of moored boats, spilling through your full view bedroom window. The guest bedroom is spacious and comfortable, it also has a king size bed, new Simmons bedding, and an attached full bath. The third bedroom has twin beds and is decorated with bright fun colors, perfect for the young or young at heart. It also has its own private bath, making it a secluded retreat. Each bedroom, along with the living room, contains its own television and DVD player for argument free viewing.

The gourmet kitchen is equipped with beautiful stainless steel appliances making mealtime fun. Its open layout with living and dining area, allow for stimulating conversation with family and guest and mesmerizing views while preparing meals. Want to eat out? Walk next door to Harbor View Grill and Sushi Bar for some of the finest seafood on the Gulf Coast.

Now for the fun stuff! The Mooring is located next door to Sportsman's Marina in Orange Beach Alabama, with direct views of Terry Cove and Perdio Pass. Relax on your spacious 800 square foot deck while watching yachts and fishing boats come and go. Take a stroll on the docks and check out the days catch, or try your own luck. Right outside your door are some of the best fishing boat captains on the Gulf Coast. Have your own boat? The marina offers plenty of wet or dry storage right next door. Bring your catch back to the condominium and grill it fresh, right on your deck with your personal gas grill. The massive zero-entry pool features 15 fountains giving the sensation of a waterfall right outside your window. A heated pool and large jetted outdoor hot tub complete the pool area. There is plenty of seating for everyone. The huge workout facility is perfect for that early morning cardio or enjoy both wet and dry saunas to sweat off a few pounds!

The Moorings is beautifully landscaped and gated for your privacy and protection. Located only minutes from beautiful white sandy beaches, shopping and fine dining, you will enjoy the best of both worlds. Try us once and I know you will be back year after year.

About Darlene Gibbs

I am a Pharmacist in southwest Alabama. My family and I have always loved the water and we are drawn to it every chance we get, whether it be at our cabin on Lake Jordan or The Moorings at Orange Beach fishing and water sports are our escape from the 'every day grind'.

Darlene Gibbs purchased this condo in 2008

Why Darlene Gibbs chose Orange Beach

We chose The Moorings because of the peaceful atmosphere and the views. We enjoy the beach for a while, and we always make the short trip to the public beach to put our feet in the sand and play in the waves, but when we are ready to relax the bay is the place for us. We love walking along the docks talking to the boat captains and watching the boats come in with there catch. The pool is as nice as you will find anywhere ( which is where the kids spend most of there time anyway no matter where we stay). To me the Moorings has it all.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the workout room and sauna at The Moorings. Shopping and dining are close at hand. Only a few short minutes to the beach. Did I mention the VIEW?

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo! It is very pretty, decorated nicely, and provides everything a person needs to reside for a week and cook most anything you would want. The view is spectacular, and the pool was perfect. We occasionally visited the beach, but we found the pool to be just as satisfying. The restaurant next door--Shipp's Harbor Grill, is excellent, and even has a twilight hour (early bird) from 3-6 with some menu items greatly reduced. If you enjoy walking, it's nice to walk around the complex and there are trails not far from the condo. It was an enjoyable week and we have absolutely no complaints.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review in August. My reviews are very important to my rental status. That being said I would like to ask after such a great review why you only gave me 4 stars. I put a lot of time and effort into my rental program and the more stars I receive the higher up my listing appears in VRBO. Just wondering if there is some little something that needs my attention. Again thank you for the great review. Darlene

The property was well maintained and always clean.

  • 5 of 5

This property is the best that we have stayed at. The main lobby area was inviting and clean as well as all the entrances to the rooms. The elevator area was always clean as well as having an Air Wick fragrance which was always pleasant. The outside was clean along with the pool area.

My Favorite Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite condo in the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach area. It is very comfortable, well equipped, and decorated in good taste. It has an extremely pleasant view. This condo has the best mattresses I have slept on away from home. It was clean, had new carpet and was maintained to a standard that said the owner cared. Next door, it has a very popular restaurant, and it is popular for a reason. I already have plans to return.

Overall experience was excellent. The couches are getting aged and could use replacement but they were comfortable. Overall I would say four out of five stars.
